Overview

The aim of this book is to introduce readers to the world of online poker. Having explained the issues involved in choosing a poker site, it describes the mechanics of poker room software.

Regarding the various poker games, it concentrates on the most popular one - Texas Hold'em. It provides an in-depth analysis of all aspects of the Fixed Limit and No Limit versions of the game, and a basic strategy for beginners, followed by advanced techniques and stratagems.

In less detail (but sufficient to get the player off to a good start), it also covers the games of Omaha and Seven card stud, explaining how the games are played, plus basic strategies.

The subject of online tournaments (also very popular) is covered in detail, and in the final chapter there are many tips for the player wishing to improve his game.

Stuart Yarnold is an electronics engineer who has been working in the industry since leaving college. Originally a marine radio & radar troubleshooter, he now devotes much of his time to playing poker professionally and can usually be found lurking in one of the online poker rooms.

Stuart lives near Cambridge with his wife Pauline and his two Staffordshire bull terriers - Jim and George. His hobbies include woodworking and marathon running
